Cape Ann was founded to address the pitfalls brought by the classic outsourcing model:
• Lack of transparency into vendor’s process
• Lack of shared ownership i.e. mostly transactional nature of the relationship
• Insufficient communication, especially around key commitments
• Lack of adaptability to client’s special business needs
Over the years, we perfected our on-shore/off-shore model to offer convenience of in-person engagement combined with access to one of the greatest talent pools in the world. Our team in Eastern Europe consists of highly trained and experienced engineers, who are also excellent at customer service. This powerful combination of skills gives Cape Ann Tech a unique advantage in providing our clients with top notch software products and exceptional service.
In addition to being very experienced, and having advanced degrees in engineering, our developers are also great problem solvers, well trained in Agile and Scrum. Cape Ann Tech selects its developers for their high technical acumen, their ability to communicate clearly and lead a project.
Clients have 24/7 access to everyone on their team. This approach builds close knit collaboration and trust between our developers and the client’s team. Our engagements typically turn into a long-term relationship with our clients.
Cape Ann Tech resolved pitfalls of the classic outsourcing model in the following ways:
• Transparency: We provide complete transparency to our processes. Clients have 24/7 access to everyone on our team working on their project. That includes all our developers working on client's project.
• Ownership: Our commitment to the client is evident from the start of our relationship. We dedicate development team to each client. There is no shifting of resources from one client to the other. We also commit to fixed cost projects, guaranteeing the price to our clients, therefore sharing both the risk and the ownership of the project success with our clients.
• Communication: We hire world class technical talent who are also excellent communicators, and agile experts. This puts us ahead of the pack when it comes to communication and project management.
• Adaptability: We spend lot of time up front to understand both business and technical requirements of the project, and we do this for clients across different industries, and across different business models.
We start the engagement by understanding your vision, strategy, business objectives, and audience. We perform product discovery and application design using an agile approach. We give the same attention and focus to you regardless if you are a large enterprise client, or a small startup.
Whether all you have is a concept, a wireframe, or a working prototype, we will turn it into a full-fledged, sophisticated application, judged both by its design as well as technical architecture.
We execute both front-end to back-end development. On the front-end, we use our understanding of the client's business goals to solve complex user interaction problems and produce beautiful UI that extends their brand. On the back back-end, we produce clean, high-quality, efficient code using a wide variety of languages.
Our designers and developers will be in direct contact with you throughout the entire process.
Our company’s mission is to provide our clients services characterized by high value, high quality, and high commitment.
Our high value comes from offering full stack development services for building custom applications, a broad collection of open-source tools and techniques, highly trained senior engineering talent, at a reasonable cost.
Our high quality is result of a highly experienced and selective, engineering team implementing the best-in-breed agile and scrum processes to produce elegant design and code. The stellar work product we deliver is characterized by low defects and a well-founded mixture of functionality, performance and style.
Our high commitment is evident in near instantaneous feedback, comprehensive understanding of your business, ability to work within our client’s culture. We anticipate needs and design solutions before the client expresses them. Our clients view Cape Ann Tech as an extension of their own team, and trust that we will operate in their best interest.
